TOP 3 CAUSES OF CAR ACCIDENTS IN AMERICA - Personal Injury Attorney

As attorneys who handle many car accident cases, McGraw & Strickland understands that car accidents are a serious epidemic in New Mexico. Roughly 10 million people are involved in car accidents annually in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it's also the leading cause of death for teenagers in America. There's no denying that car accidents cause needless injury, death and devastation every year right here in our community.

The three top cases of car accidents are:

3. Drunk Driving

Driving under the influence is one of the most dangerous things a driver can do. Mothers Against Drunk Driving estimates that 300,000 incidents of drunk driving occur daily in the United States. It goes without saying that drunk driving is hazardous and irresponsible. Accidents that occur by way of drunk driving are preventable.

Our lawyers handle cases involving accidents caused by driver intoxication on a regular basis. Our hope is that by holding people responsible for the injuries caused in these accidents, we can help our clients be fully compensated for their injuries.

2. Speeding

Speeding is one of the most prevalent causes of car accident today according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, contributing to about a third of all car accidents in America. Slowing down saves lives. Drivers can protect themselves and others by going the speed limit.

1. Distracted Driving

Distracted driving continues as the number one leading cause of car accidents in America. Talking on the phone, texting, eating, reading, grooming, and talking are just some of the ways drivers get distracted behind the wheel.

Drivers who use a hand-held device are 4 times more likely to get into a car accident than drivers that pay attention to the road ahead. Individuals who text message while driving are 23 times more likely to get into an accident.

Putting everything down and paying attention to the road ahead is the single most important thing you can do today to reduce your risk of getting into a car accident.

The personal injury lawyers at McGraw & Strickland have successfully litigated many different kinds of car accident cases, motorcycle accident cases, and others. If you have been in an accident and are injured, you should speak with a personal injury attorney about your options.
